Seated Acupressure

Seated Acupressure is a non-invasive treatment specifically designed for the back, neck, shoulders, the arms, hands and scalp. It is also known as ‘On Site Chair Massage’ and ‘Acupressure Massage’. It includes specific massage techniques and acupressure pressure point techniques. Seated Acupressure uses the same Acupressure points (known as Acu points in Chinese and Tsubos in Japanese) as eastern techniques or Shiatsu. It is based on the traditional Chinese medicine which states there are 14 meridians of the body or pathways in the body in which body’s life force or chi (energy) travels.

Traditionally, the basic sequence is no more than 20-30minutes, which makes the Seated Acupressure the ideal modality for the busy workplace environment where employees can benefit from this quick and de-stressing treatment. It also means people have time to come out of work and receive a massage during their lunch break. It can be carried out in any setting as the clever ergonomic design of the chair means it can be carried anywhere and set up easily. The client does not need to remove clothes and no oil is used. The seat allows the client to sit comfortably with their head resting forwards on the support. The therapist uses their hands, fingers, thumbs and elbows to apply pressure to the specific acupressure and trigger points found in the individual.

The treatment helps to stimulate and balance the flow of energy throughout the body. In turn this stimulates the circulatory, nervous, muscular, immune and lymphatic systems whilst promoting release of endorphins and important mood-regulating neurotransmitters.
